1-3 H&K MP5A5. Got the mag, and barrel done. The mag is removable, and holds 18 dark grey connectors. 4 Organizing my K'nex! (that's merely half of it, sadly) 5-8 K'nex coaster with tube supports, I'm guessing it'll be done in about a month. 9-10 K'nex fan, it goes super fast. (The blades are temporary) 11-22 Noreastern (super big storm, google it) came! About 2-3 feet of water in the back road, fuddled basements, fallen trees, and more! I had a video, but Ilost it. If I find it, I'll put it on Youtubw.

Have you been buried by the American snowpocalypse? (Or is it snowmageddon?) We Brits thought we had it tough recently, but thirty-eight inches? That's almost a metre! There are quite a few pictures (more pictures) and stories on the BBC, even another Washington snowball fight (no guns, this time). What about iblers, though? Can you get to your workshops?

I just came across this article that I had to share. I thought it was interesting. We are supposed to have severe weather conditions here. We had a thunder storm in December last night. Weird. http://news.yahoo.com/giant-tsunami-shape-clouds-roll-across-alabama-sky-192102289.html . Sunshiine

If you've seen the news you might have seen that the state of Florida is in the path of a tropical storm. However if you are in the state, seeing local coverage, you'll know that we're in the path of a Class 12 DeathStorm!!! In reality, the situation is even more dire than even the local news reports, I'm down to my last beer. One plus, it only took an imminent natural disaster to get our governor to visit the state, he's been too busy campaigning for mccain. I just want you to know, that is I don't make it out this time, the gold is buried under a big W!

I have a new mechanism for a knex gun, and hopefully a new storm 220. It can switch between semi auto and full auto and is chain driven. I won't give away the mechanism in case anyone beats me to it, but is there anything you guys could suggest I could add to it? edit: It is now posted with full instructions

There was a set of videos in YouTube that showed how to make an awesome storm trooper out of trash cans... Unfortunatly I don't have access to YouTube at work or at the local library... and have a convention I want to wear it to this friday... If someone would watch through it and post an instructable that would be great... or at least post the item list here and I can figure it out from there... I just really want to have it done by this weekend. Also, TO COME -> GONK COSTUME (I made this one myself, and it turned out great)

It is a female beagle and if a burglar broke in to our house the only thing she would do is lick them to death. We have taken her out side during the storms to let her out side. Any ways to calm her down?

The San Francisco Bay area is being hammered by a series of winter storms right now. There are gusts to 75 MPH and a torrent of rain. All that wind-swept rain has flooded our server room and created a foot-deep lake on the runways outside the control tower! If things aren't working right on the site, it's the rain's fault, really...This storm is actually pretty tame by East Cost standards, and I'm proud to report I got a little bit of kitesurfing in yesterday morning on the front of it before the wind and rain truly picked up. It's just that we have perfect weather 90% of the year here, so it's really the relative difference, not the absolute magnitude, that makes people talk about how bad it is.

A thunderstorm rolled in at about 3:00 p.m. near my house in Aurora Colorado. I was amazed by the clouds that were present, and recognized some of them as "Mammatus Clouds." These clouds are fairly rare, I've only ever seen then twice. They are named "Mammatus Clouds" because they resemble a mammals breast. These clouds were not as distinctly mammatus as the previous ones that I had observed, but they are still mammatus clouds nontheless. I thought that these are really cool, and that someone might enjoy seeing them. Enjoy! 3:00-3:55 6-15-2012 Aurora, Colorado

Hey, I've decided to name my weapons, like the heavy does in TF2. They are as follows (and they will NOT work without the Russian accent):Storm 220 V1 = SaschaStorm 221 V1 = GertieStorm 222 V1 = UrsulaStorm 223 V1 = BerthaStorm 220 V2 = NataschaStorm 221 V2 = RosmertaStorm 222 V2 = Nikita(postage after we've moved house) TJ-ASTR V1 = LucyJamassault pistol = HannahTJ-SR-V4 = BarberaStorm 22 Pistol = NathaliaI'll be referring to them by name from now on, so you better learn these!
Posted by The Jamalam 8 years ago
Why did you name your guns like they are? Was it random? Does it stand for something? Or is there some long or complicated reason involving foreign translation or coke or some film? eg. my storm guns are all good for fast fights with their quick reloads times. They are assault weapons, the german translation "Sturmgewehr", which can also be translated to mean storm rifle. the 22_ bit comes from the fact that it took me precisely 2 months and 20 days to perfect my rifle, and the number has gone up to help with chronology, not to do with hours. And you?

I had an idea today I thought would be interesting after reading about this - http://www.richardbox.com/ - how about integrating a fluorescent tube into the handle of an umbrella. If the tube was supported inside an acrylic clear (or coloured) tube and had some kind of connection to the handle and to the tip of the umbrella, then when walking under pylons, in a storm (eek?!), or in any situation where there would be a big potential difference between something above the user and earth. This could be interesting near tram/train lines.What do people think?

My 2 dogs are afraid of thunder and lightning. They always get under your feet and trip you during storms. Any Ideas? Answered
I have 2 dogs. One is a toy poodle (my sisters), and the other is a mutt. (Hound, German Shepard, and a couple of other breeds) My problem is, they are afraid of storms, particularly thunder storms, and I love them to death but they get under your feet, trip you, jump on you (it hurts when the mutt jumps on you (75lbs.) ), and they whine. I just wanted to see if anyone had an idea that would cure them if this.

I would like to create a battery override for the starter on my propane furnace. We've lost power a few times during some of the major storms. If I could backup the electric starter on the furnace with a battery backup, I could still have heat during any loss of power.

The other day I was driving along the side of a lake after a snow storm and saw two kids shoveling off a skating area. The ideas for a home-brew zamboni were tested and retested. My final design would be an adult tricycle toeing a piece of sheet metal on the ice with a camp fire on top.

Our friends at Lion Brand Yarns recently suffered a collective wave of gigantism when they set about designing this Winter's offering for the Craft and Hobby Association. What may have started as a collection of delicately detailed stuffed animals has grown to monstrous proportions. (Monstrously adorable that is!) Scroll through their flickr stream so you can get a fair idea of the full scale of these creatures. And if that's not enough, come see them in person at this year's Maker Faire! While you're checking out these amazing creations, get your inspiration on for our upcoming Critters Contest with Lion Brand. Ladies and gentlemen, start your needles!

How is everyone who lives in the path of the snow storm doing? I hope everyone's okay. We're in Oklahoma and the worst is over. We've been having jammies/movie marathons laughing ourselves silly. I think tomorrow might be warm enough for some snowman building. Make soup, stay warm, be safe!

Can someone make a instructable about how to make an "Ozonator" for water purification similar to that which was on a Discovery TV show called "The Colony"? Essentially they created a water purification station using an Ozone generator they created to purify all of the water they were drinking from the LA storm gutters. Thanks

I've heard of computers fried in electrical storms, even with a surge protector. 1) Is there a better way to protect it, short of unplugging? a friend mentioned connecting it thru a bus, and letting the bus act as a fuse. I'm not sure what he was really getting at. 2) What are the odds? 3) experiences + anecdotes?
